Just read a book (maybe it was just writer's wishfull thinking?)
and her character used "fork" styled pins to keep seams together for matching up...
Said they were kinda like a bobby pin - you stick one side on each of the sides of the seams and the seams don't shift when sewing... so seams/points match up.....?
Can't find these magical pins...
Anyone heard of these? Do you use?
Thanks for the help!!! ;-)

No, but I use very fine silk pins. I can even sew over the pins if I really don't want the matched seams to move.

I got a box about a month ago at my LQS. Sorry can't take a pic, don't have a camera. They were expensive and not all that sure they were worth it ! Came in a small box and were similar to a bobby pin but the 2 sides were parallel to each other, about 1/2 apart, intead of coming together like a bobby pin does.

I also purchased these pins. Do not think they are as good as the extra fine glass head pins. Found them to be dull in comparison.
